Don’t know what I want to do in lifeWatch
If I was able to get the top grades I would have done medicine but I feel like being in lockdown and having extenuating circumstances had a really huge impact in me doing well
I don’t know what I enjoy and I’m scared that I won’t get the grades I want for A levels especially considering that teachers are looking at all past assessments rather than the ones we did at the end of the year
To the OP, unless you have done at LEAST 2 or 3 days in a chain chemist like Boots or Lloyds, as that is where two thirds of pharmacy graduates end up, then think very, very hard before starting the half a decade slog to a 'career' in pharmacy on £18-20 an hour. The money hasn't moved in a decade. I earn less now, than I did in 2008.
Although I do agree with the forum helper, that if have an interest in that area, (and are not bothered by money) then go for it, if that's what you think is best for you.
PS. Those pharmacists, that really, really wanted to be Drs, are the most unhappiest pharmacists of them all. So think very carefully and seek advice from college/school on taking a gap year/ doing a re-sit and re-applying and beefing up your application to medical school.
